The University College South Denmark (UC Syd) invited the SEMPRE partners to present and discuss the progress on the training modules which will be delivered to social service providers to equip their staff with necessary skills and expertise. The training took place on 1st and 2nd of November in Esbjerg, Denmark.
The training shall enable these organisations to foster empowerment in the context of their engagement with their end-users. The partners were instructed in the underlying learning concepts of the training programme which will be ultimately based upon the principles of action learning, a method which is devoted to practical application of theoretical knowledge in recurring cycles. This makes the method particularly suitable for practitioners from the field. But social service students can also gain valuable hands-on skills to apply empowerment tools in their future work. A pilot implementation of a "training of the trainers" module is planned to be delivered in early 2018.
